Delegates working in manufacturing, R&D, production, procurement, plant and facility management, testing and development will enjoy two days of in-depth workshops, hands on access to new technologies, and networking opportunities with leading suppliers at SMARTFactories. International exhibitors participating in the event include Omron Electronics, Industry 4 Turbo Machines, Rascals Automation, Thermo Fisher Scientific and Vega Instruments SA.

Among the talks and workshops at the event will be:

¬ Software in manufacturing;
